Coconut cream

Other names: creamed coconut

The terms coconut milk and coconut cream are used interchanably. Good quality coconut milk is made from pressed coconut meat and has a thick creamy texture. It is typically available canned. This should not be confused with "cream of coconut" which is a sweetened mixture used in drinks and some desserts.

These are not the same. Coconut cream is sold in blocks and can be grated to add to a dish. It has a thicker consistency than coconut milk.

You are thinking of Creamed Coconut, Theresa. Coconut Cream is very much like Coconut Milk, only with a 4-7% higher fat content. If Coconut Milk is left out long enough, Coconut Cream will form on the surface.

Yes, Dani, you are correct - I was thinking of creamed coconut when referring to the block that is grated. What I had meant to refer to is that coconut cream is a bit thicker than coconut milk.
